His lawyer is arguing that the computer charge of enticing a teen for sex over the internet is wrong. The email she argues was sent over the intranet which the school owns therefore not guilty.
To me this is a “oh gimme a break”. He used his computer to send an email to another computer which the victim received and went to him. Whether it was the internet or intranet it was the same processes of sending, receiving and victim going to him.
Owen should have been locked up for years. I hope the appeal is thrown into trash and Owen has to pay for this really idiotic appeal.
